Donald Trump making a phone call with Vladimir Putin. Sunday, April 9, 2017 (7 comments)

The Syria Conspiracy: Now Here's One I can Believe: Trump, Putin and Assad set the whole thing up. The chemical attack, the missile attack, the denials, the warnings from Trump, the threats from Putin. All according to script. Yes, it's a morbidly depressing theory and so, in some respects, I hope I'm wrong. But I wouldn't be surprised if I'm right.

The dumb, venal, rotten GOP game plan(s) Since all three GOP game plans are working together for separate goals, they share a mutual interest in fomenting chaos. The media have to decide daily what to focus on: The Russians? The wiretaps? The Wall? The travel ban? The budget? The conflicts of interest? The Trump/Ryan health care plan?

A game of Solitaire in the White House The NIC was wandering around the White House in his bathrobe when the phone range. A voice on the other end suggested that to occupy his time he should play his favorite game -- Solitaire. "Yes, mother," the NIC obeyed and hung up. Having stacked the deck with just red queens, the trigger card, the voice called back a minute later and said, "Blame Obama."

Press gets chance to redeem itself on Trump In a strange way, Trump has pulled the reverse on the old he giveth with one hand and taketh away with the other. During the campaign he made a mockery of the press. In office he has continued to insult and assault the media because they are finally recognizing him for what he is. Much of the mainstream media has started doing its job again--Reporting the truth.

Behind his bluster, GOP pillages America If you watch the movie, ''You've Been Trumped,'' you'll realize this is all just the same plot over and over again. In place of the Scottish government that rolled over to the narcissist and let him build an ostentatious golf course, we have congressional Republicans, smiling and nodding and saying in private to other nations, ''Don't pay attention to what he says.''

Why won't McCain take on Trump? By not challenging Trump with actions as well as words, McCain leaves himself open to criticism that, while he may be prone to occasional flashes of anger, he's not willing to risk losing whatever standing, power, and influence he may have within his party by engaging in an all-out fight with the president based on principle.

It's far too late to undo the damage Trump has done or to deny any part in it, but it's not too late to admit the mistake of supporting him in spite of all the hateful, false things he said.

A false argument about 'false balance' In the opinion of The New York Times' public editor, Times reporters must resist the arguments about false balance -- giving political candidates' statements, opinions and actions equal treatment even though the truth argues otherwise -- because, in their distaste for Trump the reporters might be tempted to go easy on Clinton.
